Ranked #1 by Consumers Year After Year – Honda Mowers Rule

Nothing beats a Honda mower for quality and reliability. Durable and fuel efficient, the twin blade design of Honda mowers offer a superior cut and produce finer clippings, which make better mulch. Smaller clippings mean less bagging and who doesn’t love that!

End of the Season Gardens Need Honda Tillers

Now that our gardens are beginning to wind down, it’s time to think about getting the soil ready for next year. With a Honda tiller you can make easy work of tilling up your plants and adding in mulch and compost to leave your soil properly set for the cold temperatures.

Tackle the Toughest Garden Projects

Made from quality materials, these tillers churn even the toughest dirt into rich loamy soil. They are easy to start and with intuitive controls, easy to use. The powerful 4 stroke engine does the work in one pass. Ergonomically designed, Honda tillers won’t wear you out while you tackle the toughest garden projects.

Tired of never having the right tool to use on your yard? Try Honda’s VersAttach System, which offers two powerhead options and six different attachments – edger, line trimmer, blower, hedge trimmer, pruner and cultivator for the ultimate in versatility.

Keep the Lights On with a Honda Generator

Whether it is a powerful thunderstorm or a strong Winter snow storm, being left in the dark is no fun. Be ready with a Honda generator. There is a perfect sized unit for whatever your power needs are.

Some of the features of a Honda generator are:

  • Super quiet – perfect for using next to your RV or camp site, too.
  • Compact & lightweight – less than 29 lbs.
  • Fuel efficient – can run up to 8.1 hrs. on 1 gallon of gas.
  • Inverter – supplies a stable source of power for computers and sensitive appliances.
  • 3 Year warranty
  • Oil Alert – shuts the engine off when oil is low.
  • Can be paralleled – multiple generators can be tethered to supply additional power.

Take on the White Stuff with a Honda Snow Blower

Preparing for Winter weather means getting ready to clear snow off your driveway and walkways. Nothing takes on the white stuff better than a Honda snow blower. The self-propelled auger drive can throw snow up to 33 ft. while clearing a path 20 inches wide. Get your blower just the way you want it – track driven or wheeled, electric start or recoil. With Honda’s reliability, this workhorse will be around for years to come.

8 Ways to Get Ready for Winter Snow Removal

Winter Snow RemovalBring on the snow! The official start of winter is almost upon us (the season starts in our area on Monday, December 21, 2015 at 11:49 PM EST). Do you have the proper snow removal equipment? Are you stocked up with de-icer and sand? Can your power equipment handle what winter storms deliver? We have some answers right here.

  1. Have a variety of tools to help remove snow: Keep shovels, scoops, scrapers and roof rakes on hand to help you tackle the white stuff and ice build-up. Every storm brings different conditions to your neighborhood, so having a variety of tools handy allows you to roll with the punches. You’ll want something to help melt the ice, like rock salt or de-icer, and something to provide traction on those slippery driveways and sidewalks.
  1. Find the right shovel for you: Looking for a new shovel this season? Find one that fits you. You don’t want one that causes you to bend down to use it. Steel shovels are the most durable and the heaviest. Plastic is lightweight and will likely make it through just one winter. Aluminum shovels are lightweight, somewhat durable and have a tendency to bend if they hit a hard chunk of ice. Pay attention to the handle. Look for one made of wood, aluminum or fiberglass and that fits your hand size.
  1. Try pushing the snow, not lifting it: When shoveling, think push not lift. “Bulldozing” the snow off is easier on your back. When you do have to toss snow, lift with your legs. Don’t try to pick up a large amount of snow in the spade. Walk over and deposit the snow where it needs to go rather than tossing it. Repetitive movements like throwing snow in one direction can cause injuries to the shoulders, arms and back. Mix up your techniques – push, deposit, toss.
  1. Prepare for outdoor chores: Dress in layers, hydrate and take frequent breaks while doing outdoor winter chores. Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually easier on your body to tackle light layers of snow a couple of times rather than one deep layer after all the snow has fallen. Stretch your muscles prior to and after shoveling. Most importantly, know your limit. It’s driveway snow not Mount Everest.
  1. Take stock of your equipment: Prefer a snow blower to shoveling? Just remember your power equipment has been sitting dormant for a while so crank it up prior to a big snowfall. Give it a good cleaning and tune up. If last winter was too much for old faithful, consider an upgrade. Keep in mind what kind of surfaces (driveways, walkways) you will be cleaning and how much snow your area typically gets. There are two types of snow blowers:
    1. Single stage: lightweight and easy to use, handles up to a foot of snow
    2. Two stage: can handle up to 18 inches of snow, many come with power driven wheels to help with steep inclines
  1. Use de-icer to help with icy surfaces – Keep a good de-icer on hand to help loosen up ice build-up on your surfaces. A de-icer is not meant to totally melt your driveway clean but it will make it easier for you to shovel off. Rock salt is a cheaper option but it can be harmful to pets and the runoff can change the PH balance of your landscape.
  1. Sand helps you get a grip: Once you have cleared the driveway, spread sand or birdseed, which provides better traction for foot traffic. Clay kitty litter is also an option but it can damage floors and carpets if tracked into the house.
  1. Humidifiers help with dry indoor air: After a long day of shoveling outside in the cold, wet snow, it’s great to come inside where it is warm and dry. Furnaces and fireplaces make interior air perhaps too dry, causing everything from sinus issues to cracked skin. Running a humidifier will add moisture to the air and help family members stay healthier and more comfortable.

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Don’t be left out in the cold this year. Preparing for winter weather now will help you manage whatever Mother Nature throws at you. So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
